Jewellery- Azva, Lehenga- Priyal Prakash (buy here), Shoes- Zara, On my lips- Vegas Volt by Mac

The sangeet is probably my favourite part of any Indian wedding. I love dancing which is probably one of the main reasons but I also admire the energy which is so infectious and instantly makes everyone a part of the extravaganza! It's easier for me to decide on a look for this occasion because I make sure to set aside my lehenga specifically for it. In the past, I have made the mistake of picking a super opulent attire which constantly restricted my movement through the event. So this time I was motivated to find a good mix of comfort and opulence, which is why this blue & green ensemble seemed perfect! The raw silk lehenga layered with a tulle added the flair that I desired and the simple gold choli as well as the net dupatta made it a comfortable choice.

I wanted to keep my jewellery minimal yet alluring. So I went for a stunning Azva set with intricately handcrafted floral detailing which matched the floral trim on the dupatta. It also had a touch of blue & green which complemented my outfit perfectly. I believe in minimalism when it comes to accessories but I was so smitten by the design of the earrings that I went ahead to flaunt it all at once! Azva jewellery is crafted in 22 karat gold which makes it an ideal choice for such occasions. A statement ring and a beautifully designed bracelet flawlessly completed the look. I love how the jewellery subtly yet effectively elevated the attire!Azva has certainly played an immense role in my increased fondness for gold jewellery! What do you guys think of this look and don't forget to tell me what you're loving this wedding season!

Dress- Marquee by Veromoda, Shoes- River Island


I am a monochrome lover but very rarely will I flaunt it without a pop of colour either in the form of my make up or some accessories! But this time, I decided to give the pop a ditch because frankly this dress had enough elements to grab eye balls anyway. When I entered the Veromoda store to check out the two new collections that have been added to the Marquee line this month, this dress instantly caught my attention. Given, that it is slightly out of my comfort zone and I would need to hit up one of the Abs Workout videos on YouTube before wearing this, irrespective, I decided to give this a go! One of the main reason for the attraction was the studded detailing on the sleeves which set it apart from the mundane. The plain top half was contrasted by a floral pattern on the bottom balanced the dress impeccably.

The two collections that have been added to the stores this month include Nocturnal Rendezvous and Hide & Seek. The former includes an interplay of various elements like structured elements on drapery as well as geometric designs combined with floral patterns. These unconventional pieces are occasionally splashed with oxidized beads. The latter is a sensuous dance between lace & satin, paying homage to the demure feminine form. Perfect for the woman who is confident, the collection plays with different tones which lends a sensual frivolity to the attire. One of my favourite pieces from this collection is a pastel green lace midi dress! What do you guys think of this look? Don't forget to check out the new collection here

Jeans, jacket, tee- Gas, Shoes- Steve Madden, Make up- Clinique


A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Gas Jeans to be a part of their 30th anniversary celebration campaign and I was super excited to join in along with a few other fellow bloggers. It was a fun shoot at the Tank store which was such a distraction because they had such amazing things at even better prices! We had the Clinique team do our make up for the shoot and we chose our outfits from Gas's new a/w '14 collection. The collection is filled with jackets that make me want to move to a colder place, jeans that fit as if they were custom made and lots of basics with a slight edge. The colour palette is rather winter appropriate; perfect to rock with a red lip!

For my look, I decided to stay true to my style and started by choosing a pair of denims that fit like a dream! I paired it with a grey tee with embellished detailing on the shoulder and this stunning cream moto jacket. Added a pop of colour with these sky high heels which I couldn't help but take home with me later. I am hoping to get hold of this outfit as well on the 13th November! For their 30th anniversary celebration, the Gas website will be free for 30 seconds at 3.30 pm so get ready to grab what you desire! It's a rare opportunity to get hold some fab denims, stunning jackets and much more absolutely free of cost. I am super excited for this digital event and have already shortlisted a few items to add to my cart! Don't forget to log in on the 13th to grab your share.
